It also happens, that if you move along that city's compact walls, when you least expect it, you see a crack open and a different city appear.

Then, an instant later, it has already vanished.

Perhaps everything lies in knowing what words to speak, what actions to perform, and in what order and rhythm; or perhaps someone's gaze, answer, gesture is enough; it is enough for someone to do something for the sheer pleasure of doing it, and for her pleasure to become the pleasure of others: at that moment all spaces change, all heights, distance; the city is transfigured, becomes crystalline, transparent as a dragonfly's wings.

But everything must happen as if by chance, without attaching too much importance to it, without insisting that you are performing a decisive operation, remembering clearly that at any moment the old city will return and solder its ceiling of concrete, neon, and smog over all heads.

This piece taken from Harbinger #3, a free newspaper-size propaganda tabloid produced and distributed by CrimethInc. Ex-Workers Collective. Harbinger is the main publishing project of the collective, but their website is also a great resource. Probably best to let CrimethInc dscribe themselves in their own eloquent words - from back page of Harbinger #3:

CrimethInc is the first stirrings of a new world, smuggled across every border in the heads and hearts of a dissident nation of millions, thrown through plate glass windows on note4s tied to bricks. It is everything that evades control - the stolen sick-day at the seahore, the shared meal free when the manager is away, the city street liberated for an hour during a demonstration... the proud look in her eyes when she walks into the principal's office holding her girlfriend's hand.

CrimethInc. is the underground railroad from this world to the next. Hop on.
